Hello,
I am looking for a way to create to automate speed testing with a command line script.  In my job I have wifi sites I frequently visit.  I have already created a batch script the tests basic network functionality.  Ping, tracert etc but I can't find any command line programs to test speed I am interested in upload and download.  After researching this I have heard that this can be done with C I would be willing to try power shell as well.  Also I would like to have the option to have the output redirected to a txt file, and possibly be given the ability to customize the output to match the site I am at.  Oh and another possible caveat I have never used C or powershell.  I due have experience with batch scripting and PHP/Mysql.  Thanks in advance.

If I were looking to do this I would probably use a combination of iperf and some scripting language.  The scripting aspects would be really to just call the iperf utility and collect output, so batch scripting could be used just fine (PowerShell could do the same).
